The start of week 6…and advent

At the beginning of the week we used audacity on the laptops. Some of us got to use the interactive whiteboard too! We had to mix together two Christmas songs to make a jingle for a radio station. It was very tricky but got us in the Christmas spirit!

We have also been introduced to a new word of the week – jubilant. Our task was to try and use it in a sentence with an embedded clause. Some of us mastered this…

Some us have even managed to fit the word of the week into our hot tasks which we completed in best. We are very pleased with our finished newspaper reports.

In addition to all of this, we have enjoyed opening our advent calendar which retells The Christmas Story .

Christingle Service

This morning we had a Christingle Service led by Canon Larkey and the Worship Council – which included Dougal and Emily in our class. We all took our Christingles into the service and Freddie and Matthew had their candles lit. We learnt about the meaning of the Christingle, sang Shine Jesus Shine and finished with a prayer. We have brought our christingles home today to be lit.

 

Creating Christingles

Today, in the afternoon, we created our Christingles for the Christingle Service which takes place tomorrow morning. First we had to take our orange – which represents the world – and glue on a ribbon which represents Jesus’ blood and the sacrifice he made for us. Secondly, we had to get four cocktail sticks and put sweets and raisins on them. We then stuck them in the orange in a cross shape. After this, we added tin foil on the top which represents the star that led Mary to Bethlehem. Finally we added a candle to the orange which represents Jesus’ body. When we light the candle it means God is the light of the world.

Choccy Pops!

Yesterday afternoon we made our chocolate and marshmallow lollipops for the Christmas Fair. Everyone made two each and it was very enjoyable!

Firstly, we put three marshmallows on a straw and then we covered them in white or dark chocolate. Finally we covered them in different sprinkles.

Awesome athlete

In the afternoon, a famous paralympion called Katrina Hart came in to do a fitness circuit. Firstly we had to line up in a queue and then we did spotty dog,leg drives,press ups and finally we did star jumps. At the end we were extremely tired but we really enjoyed it!

Eventually , we had a interesting assembly about her life and she told us if you want to be good at something you have to try your best! She told us she won a couple of medals and she was very active! It was very fun!

Sponsorship forms with sponsor money are due back in school no later than Monday 27th November 2017.
